I'm not a pro boot fitter, but, I would suggest buckling up your boots a little tighter around the shin? Experiment and stuff, I've had problems with my fulltilts all year and just now they are starting to fool good! They're awesome, don't get me worng: some people just don't adjust to boots all that well (like myself)
tbh I used to wear my boots super tight. but recently have been rocking 10 tongues from my last yrs seths and I seem to get away with a looser fit with the stiffer tongue. Might just be me. I also put the most forward wedge in the back and remember to ski forward and not backseat.
No worries. The booster strap will most likely be the one stop fix it thing you need. It'll tighten the tops of your boots, making you more snug. The cants might do something, I've never used them though
i have no idea how people ski w/o booster straps. they make such a big difference.
as for what one you should get...get the regular 3 strap one if you're a good skier and over 140lbs. if lighter, get the 2 strap. if ur a really good skier and over 155ish get the 3 strap world cup ones (gold colored buckle).
They come in three varieties. Use the guide based on your weight and level.
I have the Expert/Racer. I am at the expert level, and weigh about 170lbs. So it's just off the scale. But I don't mind at all. It works for me.
if your buying booster straps make sure you do it at a shop and have a bootfiter look at how your boots fit first. booster straps are great but will not fix a badly fitting boot. It may be you need somthing else doing, or it may be that boosters are what you need, but better to find out before spending money on some thing which potenialy wont help.
I would suggest doing the power strap under the tongue. Wrap the liner as tight as you can get it around you leg then do the power strap then proceed to buckle your boots are normal. I have bird legs and even with a Booster Strap I couldn't get it tight enough. When I tried this it got rid of my pain completely. Not saying it will 100% work for you but I'd give it a shot before you go spending $20 on Booster Straps.
I know you're local...so go see the guys at Don Thomas. I have last year's booters and was having some pain in my foot this year. Went to Don Thomas, they punched out my boots in a few places, and now they are sex on my feet. I know you're not having the same problem, but go talk to the guys at Don Thomas and they'll tell you what's up.
the cant is adjusted on the ankle of the boot and will adjust it based on if your bulllegged,neutral stance, or knock kneed. The wedge will help you adjust the stance, for me the most forward stance helps me in comfort and performance. TBH the problem you have is probably lack of skiing forward and not filling out the liner due to chicken legs. You don't really want any space in the liner between your leg and the front and the back of the liner. Hope that helped. Ways to solve. Work out, do what I suggested, stop skiing backseat, get booster strap.
Got the 09/10's and had the same problem. I weight 180 tho. 8 flexs helped a ton but i also got the cuff spolier to help fill out the top of the boot. This doesnt throw off your forward lean and helps if you have skinny legs
